Unfortunately in the basement I have a buddy. The basement belongs to the cat. She loved having me down there while I put on borders and binding. It also forced me to wash the quilt before I gave it to my parents.
The quilt had a photo session at my brother's house after it was washed. Here is it hanging from the railing.
Did I really line all that up? Yes, on all 4 sides. My sister Sarah over at SewJoy made the borders and the blocks with ruby in them. I made the double nine patch blocks, put the blocks together, quilted it and did the binding. Not the best quilt job. There was so many seams that it was hard to get everything to flow nicely under the machine. I stitched in the ditch around every 3 inch square for the main quilting. I would probably do something different now after seeing what it looks like. Next time.
Congrats mom and dad on 40 wonderful years.
I forgot to take a picture of the beautiful label my sister made. I'll try to do that before I leave for Idaho in less than a week!
